Fairly condensed, with the smell of warm black fruit just spilling out of the glass. Yet the body isn't as heavy as typical Amarone; in fact, it's kind of light, making for an easy wine to drink with dinner. There's some spicy flavor, along with licorice. Ends a little lean and short, which is the biggest detractor from an otherwise very good wine.
